My mother, 16 year old daughter, and I recently rented an apartment next to this restaurant and absolutely loved everything we ate and drank here! The service was excellent, the manager was incredibly professional and friendly, and we always felt welcome. Highly recommend.

I come here quite often mostly for either for business or with friends. The restaurant is conveniently located and has valet parking. The staff is polite, friendly and discreet. The food is typical French fare (my favourite is brandade de morue), good quality although the portions might be small for those with a big appetite. I like to sit upstairs... More

I stayed over the road in the Hotel Le Derby Alma and arrived around 9 at the hotel and my colleague and I walked over to this Café for a late dinner.

When i wanted to pay for the overpriced Coffee the bartender laughed at me when i took out my Visa card, then he called over the host to laugh at me too. Felt very little, and they wouldnt offer an explanation. Wouldn't recommend this arrogant service to my worst enemy.

We often pass by this restaurant at the end of along day when we are tired and haven't thought about what we will do for dinner. We poke our noses in the door and we always get a really lovely greeting and somehow a table is found for us. The food is delicious and we leave feeling refreshed.

Very accommodating staff. Menu has plenty of options. There are daily specials (today was beef cheeks and a Nutella pear tart). THe steak frites was tasty. The fries must be fried in beef fat. Yum The desserts were good. And they serve Berthillon ice cream! Good but not great.

I ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter let me taste it, but poured wine for my wife before I approved the wine, and ignored my protest. They cleared... More

An elegant and trendy brasserie with exceptional service. Not typical in that they seem familiar with the concept of sharing plates and even have menu items suggested for sharing. The artichoke cream soup was delicious as was the salmon and the sinfully rich mashed potatoes. Our server was professional and attentive and we felt welcome and at home.

How on gods green earth can fizzy water cost as much as wine? Please enlighten me? Should have had wine, God knows how much that was! Overpriced and pretentious.
